We had 11 people today so we covered Priority 1 and 2. Would have liked to cover a couple more areas. Maybe next month.
Jim Ireland, Bill Ringer Nick Hepler, and Brokeback Christopher Jackson handled Priority 2. Weeds cut back around the berm turn plus we knicked and deberm from Day Use Lot back to last months work party area. Nice work.
Middle Run Work Party is this Saturday August 19, 2017. Enclosed is a map of the planned work areas.
